The Handmaiden

By Elvira

Death                                                                          the Handmaiden
forever                                                                        with us
walking                        silently
Amid chaos
Her Smile
beguiling
Her Countenance –
Young
No Ugly Crone,                                                            She.

Luring
Luring                          all
Needs  NO boar,                                                         No Oarsman
just
Time.
No ONE                                                                       ESCAPES;
Not                              even
the Ice Man.
Create                         a Monster,
You                                          CAN NEVER                 fool
the Master.

He                                            sends                           her
in MANY forms:
Age
Disease
Gamine
She                                          Disappears                  as the Wind –
You                              CAN slow                     her —
but
NEVER STOP                her.

There                                       ARE                              NO
Immortals
here.
Just                  Flesh and
Blood

Write your                   stories
Create your                 machines
for Eternity                              CAN NOT
grasp                           them:
they are as
the Wind
INVISIBLE
except to
HIM.
